Hi Don, thanks for your enquiry. Perhaps consider taking your pocket watch to an independent antiques dealer who specialises in Horology, or the Australian Antiquarian Horological Society, details can be found here: http://www.clockandwatchclub.com/default.htm

I have an antique pocket watch. Inside it says robert liverpool #617. Gold & ornate. Watch is very heavy.Silver or gun metal. Has a key. Is this Robert Roskell Liverpool? Missing glass and hands. What is it worth? It has a repair paper inside dated 1857 in Shelbyville,Ky. Thanks,Emma

Hi Emma, it is difficult for us to make an identification based on that description. We would recommend that you contact a horologist through the Australian Antiquarian Horological Society http://www.clockandwatchclub.com/default.htmor a similar group in your area, who can look at the watch itself. Most watches have hallmarks that will help to identify the maker and a horologist should be able to tell you information based on this.

I have a duplex escapement-dual time zone watch with Robert Roskell over Liverpool. Would this be a rare watch and could you please provide an approximate prod. date. Thank you.
